But can it play Crysis?
Fanboys regardless of where it is directed is just ridiculous
some credits to ASUS ROG Crosshair V Formula-Z...
No kidding if that was the boot up vcore even with a low clock that is a hell of a power draw for those mosfets.
This, finally, is impressive stuff from AMD. But ouch @ 1.932 volts on the core!
Personally, even if @ ... say ... 7.5 GHz or something, i would like to know how it performs when compared to stock: interested in knowing the performance VS GHz increase.
Later, and for comparison purposes, i would like this (@ lower speeds, if necessary) compared by percentage VS stock speeds against other offerings from both AMD and Intel: would be interesting to know not how much better / worse a processor is but how much it's gains from a fixed overclock percentage.
I'd say this particular chip should be able to do @ least 0.5 GHz more if using only 1 module, but that's an estimation on my part.
Like to see some 8320 clocking. Much more useful right now to find out how well those clock. If they hit the same as the 8350s then more money saved!
Good. How long it lasted before got fried?
I'm okay with you not being impressed, but am simply annoyed that you would call it "completely, totally and utterly pointless".
Finding the limits of current tech is no mean feat, and without pushing the limits, how are you supposed to know if there has been any progress at all?
It never got fried.
All 8 cores enabled
Where is Trickson, I demand trickson come in here and talk crap about AMD.
When AMD break the record with only 1 core enabled he is all up in the thread talking negative. Now 8 cores are enabled he is nowhere to be found!
eidairaman1: Wow Trickson has changed? Never saw this coming. Congratulations Trickson.
This is what he said in the other topic
i wonder how long it could live with some phase change cooling at, i dunno, 6-7ghz if kept around 30-40 degrees celsius or lower. if it can last a year, this is quite awesome actually.
What's up with those kinds of threads here on TPU lately? a lot of posts are plain stupid even in MY low standards.
Cmon, 8 full cores overclocked past 8Ghz, that's not a trivial thing
this is a great feat considering all cylinders are firing now. This is satisfactory in the stock level too. Hopefully AMD is really working hard on SR to get it working faster in today and tomorrows apps without the clock speeds. (be nice to see a fast 2 GHz Chip)
To You all hard Intel fanboys shouting "pointless!":
Tell me please, what's the overclock record for the Ivy? ...Exactly.
So, correct if I'm wrong, but doesn't that mean Piledriver has much better overclockability potential then Ivy?
no need to add to the flamebaiting bro, they see how far they have been pushed, like everyone else who has entered this topic, its just jealously.
Honestly PD does perform better especially in the temperature dept. Only further steppings should improve it
Actually it does.
It means under liquid nitrogen a binned Piledriver has better overclocking potential than Ivy Bridge.
Until somebody counters this record on an Intel rig my above statement will be true. And the Intel Fanboy's cringe when I say it.
yep...i'm sure PD will do better from my current setup
with little luck,i might set with just the same 4% vcore increase,40% more Bclk while gaining a whooping 60% clock...that 6 Ghz for daily
already has lol especially since 8 GHZ with all modules and cores enabled lol
Nah, now it's equal to Phenom II on gaming.
um i think at 5GHz the PD now beats out the Phenom II...
Yeah, if Phenom II runs at 3,4GHz... I'm not talking about well multi-threaded games like Battlefield 3, take a look at S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat. An overclocked Phenom II 980 (@4.4GHz) beats the crap out of all Piledozers.
ya and that is a chip that is getting strained, plus not all 980s oc to that level, most PHIIs go about 3.8-4.1GHz
Well, mine Phenom II 965 did quite well at 4,4GHz and it goes now for 92 euro here in Europe
